Trying to start up the Bandit (1200, 1998 model) again after a while and having to tinker with the carbs. For starters, last time I tore into them I replaced 3 of the 4 O-rings that are on the little plastic stems in the bowls. Unfortunately apparently the ones I chose to replace them with were not resistant to chemicals (like gas), so they turned to goo on me. :nuts: Lesson learned, not all o-rings are created equal.

So I'm on the hunt for a set of 4 of these O-rings, here is a couple pics of the original one that was still ok. It just serves as a compression fitter to hold in the plastic stem portion of the float piece.

Anybody know a place a guy can get these? Other than dealer.

Ya my only worry is getting o rings that are same as before and turn to goop on me. Does Holeshot or whatever his name is sell these? I think I got my jet kit from him originally.
